Although Intel has a massive market share in the chips industry, analysts think that Advanced Micro Devices , Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD) has a strong chance of denting Intel ’s grip due to the pricing factor. Last month, AMD launched Threadripper chips, which are high performance CPUs with up to 16 cores. This product starts from $799. On the other hand, Intel ’s latest chips, multi-core Core i9 product line, costs over $1199. This major price difference brings Intel ’s dominance in question. Analysts think that most of the gaming community is now tilting towards AMD, as they cannot afford hefty price tags.
AMD is also expected to launch 7nm chips, which would boost its portfolio in the industry.
